Best place in Capurganà and Colombia so far! Really collaborative and sweet staff. The place, really nice, is in a good spot near the beach and the italian based food (five star pizza) it's really good. I was with friend but it's highly recommended for couples too

The hostel is great, run by an italian guy from tuscany. The rooms are big and spacious and there is a really nice garden where to sit after the beach. The hostel has also a nice restaurant, we tried the pizza which was one of the best ones we had in colombia!

I found this place by chance. Tough it doesn't have a swimming pool (well...the ocean is just few meters away) is by far the best place to stay in Capurgana. Cheap, friendly, small (just 6-7 rooms available) best price quality ratio. Do not miss the chance if you're going to Capurganà
